  • What's New

In August 1992, Austin voters overwhelmingly approved the SOS Water Quality Ordinance and the Save Our Springs Alliance was incorporated to defend and advocate for the ordinance, Barton Springs, and the Edwards Aquifer ecosystem.

Now, 22 years later, as the threats to Barton Springs and the aquifer unfortunately continue,  we're still here fighting to protect them.

Public Hearing Written Comments on SH 45 SW
Thursday, 24 July 2014

Next Tuesday July 29th, starting at 5:00 PM but going late, TxDOT and CTRMA are hosting a public hearing at the Bowie High School cafeteria to take public comment on their draft Environmental Impact Statement for 45SW. The lengthy document is riddled with unsupported assertions that the toll road will have "negligible" impacts on the environment. Read our summary of the most egregious shortcomings of the draft EIS on the Keep Mopac Local website here and file your own written comments before August 13th online here.  SOS Alliance and our Keep Mopac Local allies will be filing detailed comments by the 13th. An update on the overall 45SW aquifer toll road picture is posted here.

New Day for Austin Water
Friday, 11 July 2014

This week the Austin Water Resources Planning Task Force released their final report to City Council recommending a new course for Austin’s water future. The Task Force’s 21-page report is a must read for anyone interested in water issues.

The Austin City Council created the Task Force in March, spurred by ongoing drought, a changing climate, and continued mismanagement of the Water Utility and it’s ill-advised head-long rush to build Water Treatment Plant No. 4 (aka the Billion Dollar Mistake on the Lake).
